Homework Help: writing

Posted by Diana on Wednesday, October 18, 2006 at 11:54am.

Can you tell me what type of essay I would be writing in response to this statement: "What, if anything, is significant about an issue--expressed in a claim?" My instructor told us to write an essay to this question.


A "claim" is usually the term for the thesis statement when writing a persuasive essay or argument:

These links are meant for teachers to use with their students, but you can pick up some excellent ideas here, too.
